Neuromuscular massage and trigger point therapy are forms of massage that address chronic pain and restricted mobility. But do you know what they are and how they work?
In-Home Therapeutic Massage can explain how these types of massage therapy work and how they can serve to benefit your body.
What is Neuromuscular Massage and Trigger Point Therapy?
A trigger point is what massage therapists call tight muscular areas that trigger referral pain in other body parts. This referred pain can often cause pain and dysfunction that proves more problematic than the trigger area itself.
An unaddressed trigger point can create pain that reverberates through soft tissues and into the joints, the neck, and even cause headaches. This tightness can also restrict blood flow and movement, often leaving the area feeling worse.
Trigger Point Therapy refers to any type of deep tissue massage that promotes healing in these areas and offers pain relief. A combination of pressure from the massage and coordinated breathing will help slowly release the tension in these areas and encourage circulation to the area.
A neuromuscular therapist uses a form of manual therapy that directly addresses areas that are sore to touch and restrict range of motion. These types of conditions or injuries also send reverberating pain throughout the nervous system leaving you feeling miserable.
Neuromuscular therapy massages can help in relieving pain associated with muscle spasms, poor circulation and numbness, or ongoing conditions such as carpal tunnel. If you have issues with your back, joints, chronic pain from a sports injury or accident, or restricted range of motion, you can benefit from a neuromuscular massage.
What are the Benefits of Neuromuscular Massage and Trigger Point Therapy?
These types of massage therapies are phenomenal at relieving chronic and debilitating pain caused by trigger points. It does this by forcing the muscles associated with the pain to relax and allow blood to circulate properly. It may even be uncomfortable at times as your massage therapist applies heavy pressure to reach deep into the affected muscles.
You’ll be able to notice the benefits of massage after one session. However, continued therapy sessions can see a permanent reduction or total elimination of your pain. As the muscle begins to heal and receives better circulation, you’ll begin to see a better range of motion and improved posture.
Because of your newly relaxed state, you’ll also receive the benefits of improved immune and digestive functions, and increased ability to flush and remove toxins from the body.
